Well Christmas arrived early for me this year ! recently I won 2 free tickets to the Web Summit 2016 in recognition of my open source contributions on GitHub. I’m really looking forward to attending next year, here are the vital statistics – 21 summits , 1000 speakers and 41,000 attendees the mind boggles !
It’s a real shame that we couldn’t manage to hold on to this jewel of a conference in Dublin, it really helps to put Ireland on the world stage in the tech community. Hat’s off to Paddy Cosgrave for growing the conference from 400 odd attendees in 2010 to these new these lofty new heights.
I’m really looking forward to Lisbon, thanks again to the kind folks at @WebSummitHQ for the free tickets !
